How to fix Samsung Galaxy A10e Bluetooth problems
The last tutorial is about fixing Bluetooth problems. It’s not surprising when people complain that Bluetooth works in a mysterious way.
Sometimes it’s easy to connect, but at other times, you can’t pair it with a certain device because of some unknown reason. The tips below show what to do during a situation where Bluetooth refuses to work properly.
Follow the steps below on how to fix Samsung Galaxy A10e Bluetooth problems:
1. Restart Bluetooth
The first and the easiest fix you can immediately apply is by restarting Bluetooth. From any screen, swipe down from the top of the screen to reveal the Quick Settings menu. Tap twice on the Bluetooth icon. One for disabling it, one for turning it on again. Afterward, try using the Bluetooth if it works.
2. Reboot your phone
The second troubleshoot is by restarting the phone as a whole. Simply press the Power key and hold for a while. When the options menu pops up, choose restart. Wait until the phone turns off and on again. Another reboot method you can try is by doing soft reset. This is especially useful if the screen is unresponsive.
3. Do the pairing again
If the Bluetooth issue occurs when you try to connect a certain device, try to disconnect that device before pairing again. This process is where your device will “forget” the other Bluetooth device so you’ll have to restart the connection between them.
To forget a device, go to Settings > Connections > Bluetooth. Find the desired device among the list. Tap and hold the device name, and when a pop-up window appears afterward, tap “Forget”. To do the pairing again, consult the pairing tutorial written in the previous section above.
4. Reset network settings
As another possible fix for Bluetooth issues, reset network settings will restart the whole network features on Samsung Galaxy A10e. So it’s just not for Bluetooth. This method is also applicable during issues related to Wi-Fi or mobile data.
To reset network settings, go to Settings > General management > Reset. Then tap “Reset network settings” and when a confirmation window appears, tap “Reset settings”. By doing this, you will need to do pairing again for Bluetooth, or entering the password again for Wi-Fi. In short, all the previous network settings will be erased.
5. Clear Bluetooth app cache
Although Bluetooth may look like a standalone feature, it is actually an app. And as an app, it has its own cache to store temporary data. Clearing this cache could fix any Bluetooth issue. So it’s always worth a try.
Since Bluetooth doesn’t come with its own app icon, you can clear it from the Settings app. Go to Settings > App, then find “Bluetooth” among the list of apps available. Tap to navigate to the detail screen and press the “Clear cache” button.
Congratulation, you just finished a tutorial about Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on Samsung Galaxy A10e. Apart from knowing how to connect to Wi-Fi or pair to a Bluetooth device, now you also know what to do when facing a Bluetooth issue. Consult this article whenever an issue occurs.
